Description

Svend Asmussen is a world famous jazz-violinist and entertainer. He is now 93 years old and still going strong. He has had a lot of different groups during the years. On this CD with recordings from 1953, 1958 and 1963 he plays with his quintet, sextet and a duo with guitarist Ulrik Neumann. The recordings are made in Hamburg, Germany where he was a frequent visitor in those years. The sound is fantastic and so is the selection of the standard tunes they play. Svend Asmussen and his quintet/sextet were at its peak. Storyville Records are very happy for this release of unissued material with one of the greatest jazz-musicians from Denmark. Storyville har fundet nogle fantastiske optagelser med (den nu 93-årige verdensberømte jazz-violinist og entertainer) Svend Asmussen. Optagelserne er fra årene 1953/1958/1963 og indspillet i Hamburg hvor han var en hyppig gæst i disse år. Der er optagelser med hans Kvintet & Sextet samt Duo’en med guitaristen Ulrik Neumann. Hans musikere var Max Leth, Jørgen Ingmann, Poul Gregersen, Erik Frederiksen, Frank Jensen og Preben Oxbøl, - alle kompetente musikere. Disse indspilninger hører til nogle af de bedste Svend Asmussen har lavet i sin lange karriere. Svend Asmussen har gennem årene spillet med alle mulige berømte musikere som Duke Ellington, Benny Goodman, Stephane Grappelli og Stuff Smith for at nævne nogle få. Stuff Smith var hans store inspiration eller som Svend selv siger mit "smitstof".
